There are many notable performers who will take part in the 2022 Australian Open. Below experts have compiled a preview of some who will appear in our Australian Open tennis tips.
Novak Djokovic starts the 2022 tennis season being ranked as the first in the world. The Serb ended last season with 11,540 points and three new Grand Slam titles to his name, including the 2021 Australian Open, where he thrashed Daniil Medvedev (7-5, 6-2, 6-2) in the final. That was the third consecutive Australian Open title and ninth overall for Novak.
Up until now, Djokivic has won 20 Grand Slam titles, 37 ATP Masters tournaments and 86 ATP single tournaments. He is undoubtedly the strongest player among men at the moment, however top youngsters, Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev, pose a threat to his reign.
Daniil Medvedev has all the chances to replace Djokovic as the world’s number one in the next few years, but he still struggles in most of their head-to-head encounters. Last season, the Russian succumbed to the Serb in the final of the 2021 Australian Open.
Daniil Medvedev had a fantastic ending to his 2021 tennis season. Medvedev won the 2021 US Open, getting a final triumph over Novak Djokovic in three sets (6-4, 6-4, 6-4). He reached the final of two major tournaments, the Paris Masters and the ATP Finals. Medvedev also made an invaluable contribution to the Russians’ victory at the Davis Cup.
At the end of the 2021 ATP season, Medvedev had 8,640 points and was second in singles.
Alexander Zverev, the world’s third in singles, finished the last season with 7,840 points. His best career result at the Australian Open is the semi-final of the 2020 AO tournament.
Zverev won the 2021 ATP Finals, reached the semi-finals of the French Open and the fourth round of the Wimbledon. Alexander won the Tokyo Olympics in singles by defeating Djokovic in the semis (1-6, 6-3, 6-1) and Karen Khachanov in the final (6-3, 6-1). On top of that, the German won the Madrid Open, the Cincinnati Masters and a few other ATP tournaments.
Ashleigh Barty is the world’s number one in singles. The Australian is the winner of two Grand Slam singles tournaments, the 2019 French Open 2019 and the 2021 Wimbledon. That said, Barty’s highest result at the Australian Open is the semi-finals of the 2020 edition.
Ashleigh Barty finished the 2021 WTA season with 7,582 points. Apart from Wimbledon, she won two WTA 1000 titles, the Miami Open and the Cincinnati Open. Barty enjoyed moderate success on clay too, winning the 2021 Stuttgart Open and reaching the Madrid Open finals.
The Australian skipped the Indian Wells and the WTA Finals in 2021, so she will be rested.
Naomi Osaka has a strong record at the Australian Open, winning the 2019 and the latest 2021 edition of the tournament. The Japanese, who is now only 13th in the WTA singles, has seen her rankings drop drastically all the way from her world’s number one spot in 2019.
Osaka suffered a meltdown of form, failing to deliver at both 2020 Tokyo Olympics and the 2021 US Open, while being the star athlete of the Japanese Olympic team and the defending champion of the Grand Slam. After the US Open, she even announced a hiatus.
Nevertheless, Naomi Osaka is getting ready to defend her title at the 2022 Australian Open.
Emma Raducanu is a British newcomer who surprisingly won the 2021 US Open, beating Leylah Fernandez (6-4, 6-3). She made her first WTA Tour appearance in June the same year and became the first woman in tennis history to win a Grand Slam tournament while starting from the qualifiers. Raducanu also reached the fourth round of the 2021 Wimbledon.
Emma Raducanu finished the 2021 WTA season as the 19th in the singles rankings with 2,595 points. The new 2022 tennis season may mark her breakthrough as being not random.
Experts of Takebet South Africa provide Australian Open picks for Raducanu and all these star players!
